"Show Me 66: Main Street Through Missouri," a 90-minute documentary about Route 66 in Missouri.

Equal parts travelogue and historical narrative, Show Me 66 explores the sights and landscapes found along Route 66 in Missouri. It also examines the Show-Me State's biggest Route 66 stories from across the decades, including the road's birth in Springfield, the effects of World War II, the road's relationship to the Ozarks and St. Louis, its decline to the interstates and the rediscovery still taking place today.

This screening is free and open to the public. It is made possible from support provided by the MSU Libraries and the MSU Ozark Studies Institute, the publishers of OzarksWatch Magazine.
